Israel thwarts attempt to smuggle military equipment that can be used by Muslim terrorists into Gaza
Israeli security forces at the Erez crossing recently thwarted an attempt to smuggle 167 packages containing military equipment that can be used by Muslim terrorists into Gaza.
Coordination was made yesterday from Israel to Gaza through the Erez crossing, for 220 mail parcels containing thousands of items ordered from sites like Ali Express and Amazon. Of the 220 packages, 167 were identified as suspected dual-use products, that can be used by terrorists.
“The cynical attempts of the terror groups in Gaza to exploit the civilian policy that the State of Israel employs for terrorist purposes are doomed to fail,” said Col. Iyad Sarhan, head of the Coordination and Liaison Administration in Gaza.
“We view this very seriously and we will continue to do everything possible to prevent their intention to harm the security of the State of Israel and its citizens.”
